{Melissa + Nick} The Nines Hotel and Thirst Bistro Wedding Photography; Portland, Oregon – Part 2


We were delighted to capture Part 2 of {Melissa + Nick’s} Wedding at The Nines in downtown Portland and on the waterfront at the Thirst Bistro.  It was so wonderful after their large event in Chicago (Wedding – Part 1), that we were rejoined by some of their closest friends again as well as some ones from Bend we recognized!  The bride and groom got ready and did their first look at the super modern and fabulous hotel of The Nines.  From there, they jumped in an infamous PediCab for a relaxed ride through downtown to their ceremony and reception at Thirst Bistro on the waterfront.

Melissa + Nick, you have such fabulous chemistry and after 2 years of communicating and working with you both through this process, it’s been an utter delight to share this final element with you both.  You’ve become dear friends and we wish you nothing but the best both in your Salulita, Mexico honeymoon tomorrow and to the years to come!!  A toast to you!~

Have fun soaking the sun!
